I love looking at alternative vacation homes – from gypsy wagons to tiny houses, mansions and even tree houses, enjoying life in new surroundings sets the mood for fun. Today I’m looking at tree houses. All I’d need is a piece of land up in New Hampshire on the edge of the White Mountains National Forest and maybe a dirt road leading up to it.
This treehouse is part of a wider outdoor venue called ‘The Woodlands’, built in the grounds of Hothorpe Hall which consists of eco-lodges and a larger function building where weddings and parties can be held. The expertly constructed treehouse sits tucked away in the treetops, and offers beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Designed with honeymoon couples in mind, access is via a curving rope staircase which leads onto a decked balcony, where guests can sit and watch the sun set and enjoy a glass of champagne.
It is used as a rental property and would be the perfect honeymoon or maybe for a simple back to nature getaway.
If you’d like to look at more of these, it was made by Blue Forest in the UK. Their portfolio includes everything from fairy-tale tree house castles, to simple kid’s play dens and luxurious grownup hideaways.
